So here are a few pictures from hurricane Igor waves down here in FL. I like to sit on the beach for a little while at Dawn before I go surfing, just a good way to start the day I guess? Was some really enjoyable surfing this day in the 10-15' range but a little onshore wind so that chopped it up a bit



This was pre dawn when it was glassy and quiet

what a job: he showed up, talked to his lifeguard buddy, went for a swim, swam all the way out through 10'+ waves to the outside, did a little backstroke out there, then rode his red buoy in like bodysurfing, took his post in the chair, and took a nap untill a pretty girl walked up asking him some question
